On holiday, very nice quiet family resort. Lots of apartments around pools. We're particularly lucky and our apartment is round a very cool small toddler splash pad type affair. My 2yr old loves it.

So last night, gone 10.30, all our kids in bed, few families on their patios including DP and I, everybody and everything super quiet. Lovely, until....

A lady with 3 kids under 6 (I reckon) came screaming across the pool area and her kids threw themselves into the pool screaming and splashing and just creating SO MUCH noise. The mum just encouraged this and did nothing to at least quiet them down a bit.
All the adults on the balconies/patios were closing Windows and doors as they were that noisy.

Cue this morning, nobody up apart from me and my shit body clock same family come tearing across the pool area, kids all naked this time and same thing making the most god awful amount of noise. Again mum thought this was hilarious hmm

AIBU to think you shut your kids up early morning and late night? Or do I just need to accept that some parents don't care and their precious kids enjoyment of the pool at 10.30pm and 7am is more important than everyone else's kids being woken up?

YANBU, that's very inconsiderate behaviour.

Bloody inconsiderate! I am surprised that there isn't a time limit on the pools - does the hotel not have any rules on this? I would complain to the resort management - I bet you won't be the only ones!

Yanbu they need to show some consideration for others

Aren't there any rules about when you can use the pool? Even in villas they're often not to be used after 8pm. Would be useful to have something you can refer to.

Call management

Zippidydoodah Sun 28-Aug-16 09:17:30

Absolutely inconsiderate and very rude! I agree you should maybe contact management of it happens again.

On a side note, do you mind telling us where you are? It sounds fabulous!

I'm now sat found the edge of said pool, no signs at all about what time it officially opens. There are lots of water squirters and fountainy things but they aren't switched on yet. I guess when they switch them on that's the official open time?

Obvs Mrs let the kids do what you want is in there already with her noisy gang

Normally there are rules about pool usage and especially about proper attire at the pool. Is there no lifeguard? Can't you call management?

Bet you don't feel so lucky having the pool right by your apartment now!

NavyandWhite Sun 28-Aug-16 09:42:55

Yes speak to management today. Sounds horrible. Have they just arrived? 😩

Usually there are opening hours, even if they're just for chlorine treatments

Ilovenannyplum Sun 28-Aug-16 13:45:04

I think they had just arrived, we are here with family (we have a row of 3 apartments) and they said the kids were also out there at 3am, 3am!!!

What kind of lunatic lets the kids go in the pool at 3am.

There are no signs about opening, it's really not very deep at all. Not even up to me knees in the middle at the deepest point so not sure if it warrants a life guard?

Glad it's not just me thinking it's not on though confused

YANBU. That's ridiculous.

arethereanyleftatall Sun 28-Aug-16 13:50:59

When do they sleep and where are you?

We went to Spain last year and the local kids hours seemed to be about 10am - noon, then 4pm till about 11pm. Restaurants didn't even open for evening meal till 9pm. So, in different countries, there are different acceptable times.

Yanbu, and it's one reason I don't go to resorts as this would irritate me beyond belief!
I'm actually a very tolerant person who likes kids and enjoys their company, but when I've put my DC to bed at their reasonable bedtimes I don't want them woken up again!
